I have a lot of experience teaching (tutoring) in guitar. I help you set clearly defined goals and objectives. Then I help you get there. The setting of goals is important because then we can work together toward them. There are milestones on the way to the goals which will help you know how you are progressing. I am very honest. If you are not making progress I will work with you find out why. But, in the end, the responsibility is on you to do your nightly homework so I can help you move forward. I am Berklee- trained and will soon be Berklee certified. I have taught and tutored students of all ages. Also, I play out a lot with a few different bands and I keep my knowledge fresh.
I hold a BA In history/political science from the College of Saint Rrose and an MA in history from the University of Albany. I keep my knowledge fresh and current.
I have been playing guitar for 20 years. I have been teaching guitar for 15 years. I have coached students toward their NYSSMA requirements. I have helped students through the college audition process. I have taught over 35 private students in the last 15 years with many wonderful reviews. I would be glad to put you in touch with one of them. I also offer a free assessment to you.
